feel they are compatible uses. the incompatibility that is being discussed is coming from older buildings with no acoustic insill laigz and designed long ago. if i was a young person i would be delighted to live on 11th street and i went to clubs all the time. i think there are lots of people that would like to live in the area so what happened in 2005 after we made the changes that the night time entertainment industry was requiring of it, which i was happy to do, and then they came back and any type of housing isn't compatible with night time uses so after i redesigned the building they decided that wasn't good enough, so what i am here to say with the proper unit mix such as what we're doing, proper acoustic design, proper mechanical system design housing should be allowed on that block and we have active permit on that site and i'm not sure with down zoning now -- what happened happen with our permit? normally you're approved to whatever is in effect at the time you submitted so i'm not sure what happened happen. thank you. >>i will call a few other names. doug caldwell --

within our city contracts that the companies that do service for us do not own the data that they generate from us, that they will have a contractual obligation to share that with the city so that we can mine that to the rest of the city, that's advance of opportunities for everybody. i know at the heart of sharing this data, there is going to be a lot more jobs created, a lot more people out therein venting new ways to establish small businesses that will improve the way we live and work and play in the city. and we look forward to great events like a super bowl host or something like that, we're going to be able to give people a really rich amount of programs that they could access from here to santa clara to san jose. we can act regionally with our data and we can join and continue to be in the great city of san francisco. so, i want to thank all of the people, all of the different starting up companies here and those that are inventing with us, thank them for celebrating innovation month in such a exemplary way. and i think we're going to have a lot more to announce
of the different starting up companies here and those that are inventing with us, thank them for celebrating innovation month in such a exemplary way. and i think we're going to have a lot more to announce before this month is out, including on our way to the world series. thank you very much. (applause) >> now, if i may introduce our partner in crime here, board president david chiu who is also going to be complimenting us with all of his efforts at the board. come on up, david. (applause) >> good morning. i am incredibly excited to be here today for a couple of reasons. first of all, the hatchery is one of my favorite places in the city. there is truly a bee hive of activity of the newest innovations that san francisco will be famous for. i also love the fact that just a couple of blocks from here is where our san francisco giants are moving on to the world series. but just in this room, all of you are giants and making sure that san francisco is the world champion when it comes to innovation. >>> 13 years ago, i like all of you started a company. i started in i-ti a technology company in
space access for the city at large which really gets integrated with mixed use development sites that are identified within the waterfront land use plan, and in carrying out this planning process originally there was another advisory group that was created that recommended a plan to the port commission at the time. the port commission in 1997 approved that plan and upon approving the plan then the port also then went to work with the planning commission and the board of supervisors and mb dc to outline the policies appropriate for the waterfront with the city's planned policies for the waterfront and to align the various jurisdictions and to try to give careful and consistent focus what should be happening along that waterfront. as i mentioned there are mixed use development opportunities that are identified in the land use plan, and the bryant street opportunity area is one of those within the south beach area consisting of pier 30-32 and sea wall lot 330. during the plan process it was always seen as an opportunity to create these mix use maritime developments that brought ne
. >> and then my second question, i just wanted to clarify something or bring it to your attention, a lot of us here today work for the administration in this building which is actually is a pump station still in use that uses diesel pumps to pump the water from the ocean so it's not just a fire house, it's also us being exposed to diesel exhaust, and so with you mentioned this gal, rachel, is she the person who's not here today, or when you were talking about the air quality, having your air quality tested, and the odd thing is now a different agency runs and maintains these pumps that are right beneath us now so it gets kind of complicated, but i think i've been exposed, i worked at the airport for 11 years and then worked here, i have this exposure to diesel smell that you don't notice it here, i do notice it frequently, and so when you mention this gal rachel. >> so, just before this, we had a meeting because we're working on hopefully building a study to look at exposures among women in the fire course to understand what they're exposed to, this raises a really interesting kind of unique s
. thank you for joining us. tell us a little bit about the organization. >> we're 30 years old now. we started with 14 farmers, and it has grown out to over 80. >> what is the mission of the organization? >> this area has no grocery store spiller it is all mom-and- pop stores. we have this because it is needed. we knew it was needed. and the plaza needed somebody. it was empty. beautiful with city hall in the background. >> thank you for speaking with us. are you on the web? >> yes, hocfarmersmarket.org. >> check them out. thank you. >> welcome. the dish is ready. >> it looks and smells amazing. >> thank you. it was not easy to meet the $20 budget. i checked everybody out and found some great produce. really lovely seafood. i think that you are going to love it. >> do not be shy. cyou know this can run you $35 to $45 for a bowl, so it is great you did this for $20. >> this will feed four to six people. >> not if you invite me over for dinner. i am ready to dig in. >> i hope you'll love it. >> mmm. >> what do you think? >> i think i am going to need more. perhaps you can have all you wa
compatible and incompatible useds, and as kind of the test lab for mixed use in this city we are the first mixed use district that was established in 1990. we have a pretty good feel as to what works and what doesn't. clearly our goal is not to banish any incompatible uses. our goal is to figure out how to deal with all of them. you're going be hearing a lot more about this as the central corridor plan comes before you because at its extreme, and i might add in a rather pollyannish way, they tend to put a lot of potentially incompatible uses all together. you will have housing. you will have office. you will have pdr, and you will have night time entertainment, and when they get to discussing how they're going to make all of that work i hope you will remember the discussion that we're having today. okay. everybody loves fun. you can't be against fun, and night time entertainment is an integral part of the fabric of south of market, so let me make it very clear from the very start there was never any notion of restricting -- putting on any additional restrictions on nig
torrez to join us again on stage, joaquin will be introducing the mayor and if i can ask my fellow committee members to also join us on stage. joaquin. >> thank you very much i have to say as director the mayor's oches of neighborhood services it's refreshing to have a mayor so dedicated to couldn't and it makes my job easier when our people in the community want to feel our elected efficients make our needs and it's in physical presence and i have had the great pleasure of serving under our mayor lee who i would like to make a invite to make a few remarks in honor or of arab heritage month here in san francisco. >> thank you, thank you joaquin, thank you, welcome to our orange city hall. i want to welcome everybody here this fourthth animal america arab month of separation and it's my pleasure to join us here and many of us know that we are such a lucky city, and we are lucky because people around their world make their way to fraction, find hopey until the city they know that we celebrate our diversity and find strength in the different cultures that pretend together and now
mechanism where we have - primarily a budgeting tool - asking as many people as possible to give us feedback on what we should prioritize for the remaining slice of that pie. this slide shows a few different items, things that we have done. the main thing that we have that we think is pretty cool tool for people to use is an online - we call it the "san francisco budget tzar tool." you can be the budget tzar for a day. we go to a number of committees, street festivals, different events, to promote use of the tool and get people more information about the plan and gather feedback. we have a specific, citywide community advisory committee working with us throughout the process. and also we have done advertisements and other mechanisms. these are some of the backgrounds. the tool is - a little fuzzy on the powerpoint, www.sfbudgettzar.com. what you can do with the tool, gives you the 64 billion that we have, you can go through and select the different levels of maintenance, levels of program support, and also the different projects that you feel should be incorporated. we will
correctvth it building for decades. when i was a member of the board of supervisors, all of us wondered why we hadn't done anything there and the mayor thought the same. >> if an earthquake happened, the building was uninhabitable. it sat there vacant for quite a while. the city decided to buy the building in 1999 for $2. we worked and looked at ways that we can utilize the building for an office building. to build an icon i can building that will house a lot of city departments. >> the san francisco public utilities commission has an important job. we provide clean, pristine public drinking water to 2.6 million people in the san francisco bay area from the hetch hetchy regional water system. with also generate clean renewable energy for city services like public buses, hospitals, schools, and much more. and finally, we collect and treat all the city's wastewater and stormwater making it safe enough to discharge into the san francisco bay and pacific ocean. >> in 2006 the puc was planning a record number of projects. >> the public utilities commission is a very infrastructure-rich organizat
. that is being rolled out at education, energy, treasury, u.s. aid, other agencies as well. these programs are celebrating the use of open data and hopefully will provide some additional support. i think there are even folks here who have been part of these events. we're excited for that continued support and hope you can all join this initiative in the neutral. -- future. >> so, earlier you were talking a little about kind of how san francisco came in in terms of actually ading the officer. more broadly how do you think san francisco compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have
that would be proving to be can i have cut stances. >> it is a range of issues that any of us get to deal with throughout our careers and when i first dame came in, it was the height of the movement and one was actively being gained in that movement. some people thought was no chance the soviet union would open its doors and it is a stunning celebration that more than a million juice were freed and that they are act did i havely involved including many specific moments, the symbol of the movement that poke directly. when i think about the holocaust survivors, they wanted to be sure it would perpetuate the memory of the coliseum off the am and our annual holocaust recommend are remember member he can where the mercedes benzsment and last year, there was a measure that would abandon circumstance suggestions and we were successful voice if fighting back. >> we will take a quick break, shortly we will return, please join us in a quick home. . >>> welcome back, i am eric wise and we are here with the executives director of jewish community relations council and who has been here with the jewis
understand whag is going on in the land use realm, the terminal and the projects and mission rock at one side and understand what all of these things or some of the muni routes coming fall into place. so just a sample of some of the outcomes of the workshop. we had six maps and summaries. these were they written on and saw gaps and things needed to happen. it's hard to read it but it's there and on the website and if you look on piers 30-32 you will see this but there is a list of comments so we know the transit and parking issues. that's helping us make sure as we work with engineers they're getting the input from the people that live and work about this area and the general responsibility in fixing transportation solutions, but the next steps and we're very much at the beginning of the assessment, are the workshops on december 4. one comment we heard loud and clear "give us land use information to match the transportation information" so we have maps that will be layered on top of the transportation networks so we can see where people are living and where the networks need to go and we
in developing this. so, as far as creating access to the public, using the open data sets, and creating exposure to neighborhoods that you probably traditionally didn't even think were there, we realized there were 1200 different facilities all through the park -- all through the city as we were going out to explore. and upon our own discovery, and i being a local native, i didn't know about 800 of them. so, as we move forward into the future, taking this, working with some other departments like san francisco arts, we're creating access for people, creating efficiency with the government being able to manage transactions, creating a platform for people to actually interact with the city on a level that hasn't been done before. so, ideally, using the san francisco rec and park, the future san francisco arts app, using our mobile commerce to manage that is creating jobs, revenue, and efficiency for the public and tourists to be able to navigate san francisco in a way that hasn't been done before. thank you. >> all right. (applause) >> so, we're going to show another application from motion launch
for us. but i don't want to down play how important it was to play with the america's cup. we piloted and tried our hand at new things and erks lie and a project and carried hundreds of people and that is a pilot project that could have a legacy. we have the bike sharing program this spring and we work with the companies to do a proxy bike sharing program and get it place for the america's cup and valet parking and giving pedestrians real time estimates how long it goes from point a, say the ballpark to the ferry building and helping visitors orient themselves around the waterfront and this is a advantage that we have piloted and try our hand at some solutions. we had a meeting already and we wanted to make sure everybody understood the big picture. what we did before the roll your she was up part of the workshop we outlined what the assessment was supposed to do and understand the networks that serve the area. it's understanding which projects and not just transportation but which ones are coming down the pipeline and when and a lot of the challenge is understanding when the solu
? >> so if we -- when we go out to customers, if they tell us they're not interested we will come back to you and report that and we'll have a decision point for going forward. that's the intention of the engagement with customers early on, is to really test their level of interest. so that will be another opportunity for you, to give us direction on how to proceed with the program. >> president torres: we'll also have further discussion at lafco joint meeting on the 30th here at city hall and obviously all commissioners are welcome to attend that meeting of which i will be there of course. public comments, mr. decosta, you wanted public comment on item 7(b), you said. >> commissioners, way back in the year 2000, some of us stakeholders used to regularly meet at 77 -- to discuss our energy issues, and we looked at the regional-wide. at that time, unfortunately, sf puc was intent to putting some combustion turbines, you know, to the detriment of what we're talking today. the way i want it look at this is that we seem to be talking in generalities. and really what we should be talking is
for them, alternatives to radiation based screening need to be, you know, used either in lieu of or in addition to and that's a very personal decision and a medical decision, but that added risk for those women who are already at higher risk from the very -- the detect is a really important issue, so does that answer your question? >> [inaudible]. >> awesome, okay, so schools, i've talked about some changes that can happen at schools but the reason we wanted to highlight this is because we can talk about federal laws, about state laws and it can feel daunting to think about getting involved in legislation at that level, although we try to make that easy for most to do by signing on to online actions and stuff, but for parents with kids, changing policies at schools can be an accessible thing, joining pta's or talking to the school board about having integrated pest management so kids aren't exposed to pesticides on playgrounds, that's been successful. there's a huge movement to get safer, healthier foods into schools and they just revised the school lunch guidelines, but also
is case 14 at 2001 3rd street. request for conditional use theoriesation. >> good afternoon commissioners. i am michelle from the planning staff. this is a conditional use permit from at&t to install a facility at 200130 and at mariposa and 3rd street. at&t proposes instillation up to nine an ten'ss and mounted on the screen and match the existing building and minimally visible and there is one on the northwest corner that will be removed as part of this project this is preferred location site. staff received 25 emails and opposed to the project based on health concerns. impact on the property and visibility of the project and blocked views and request for additional information. in response to that at&t arranged a another meeting this week and give information on the proposed project. staff has received four letters in support of the project and i am available for questions if needed. thank you. >> project sponsor. >> good afternoon president fong, members of the commission. i am teddy and director of external affairs for at&t california. i am joined by the company who conducted

should all use glass but we know what's used out there is plastic, and it's reusable, you can come up with all these ways to avoid it but there's plastic everywhere and it's accessible and cheap, so plastic wrap gets used a lot, there aren't that many alternatives that can do what plastic wrap does, i don't use a lot of it and it's harder to store things long-term and same question applies for the freezer, it's easier to put things in a freezer bag. >> so, a little tip for that is i do admit to using plastic bags, i reuse them and if something is not -- i don't use them for liquids and if something isn't somehow already kind of like a solid or whatever, parchment paper around that and then use the plastic just as the thing that keeps it from leak-proof or if i'm taking soup to work, i have my soup in a glass jar but i will throw it in plastic because i don't want it all over my backpack and there's also more stainless steel options which are a little more expensive but that's a one-time investment, just don't lose it, so a box of plastic bags, it lasts me like three year, parchment pa
the highest and best use of 14 acres of pristine lakeside land can be at lake merced. as you know the city has been in a rather difficult position with the pacific rod and gun club at lake merced. after many months, some extent years of debate with the gun club i'm pleased to bring forward a settlement that the gun club has agreed to, that will set in place a process by which the rod and gun club will largely be exiting the premises, and much more importantly, be participating in the environmental clean up that needs to be done. for decades the work -- not the work, the activity that happened at the rod and gun club caused significant environmental damage to lake merced, by some estimates over $10 million and thankfully the settlement reached by the city attorney and the puc of the rod and gun club will be participating in the cleanup cost. so i'm pleased to bring this forward, pleased we're finally bringing in i won't say conclusion to the process but beginning the final steps in ending that use out there, and finally allowing the public to have a discussion that i think the public has wanted
in 34 years susan rice was using the unclassified talking points which were provided by the intelligence community. they were a consensus report. >> i don't know what the democrats are trying hide because i don't know what any of them saying, they are saying the intelligence community signed off on talking points. they went to the administration. when they came back, key language was changed. >> reporter: specifically, republicans say we are learning that any reference to al-qaeda's involvement in the attack was omitted and ambassador rice used it on those talk shows five days after the attack. >> heather: the administration could tech any mean the white house the security council or other entities, is any one component coming under special scrutiny? >> as of today, mike rogers for the first time fipgering one point of the national security council the deputies' committee of the council. >> it went up to the deputies committee. what i found fascinating, my role here in my mind to say was there intelligence failure and how to prevent it from happening again. >> reporter: republicans are d
for the mix use and retail development and in the dotted lines that is how views are gained along piers, along the san francisco waterfront, long views along the edge of the pier. but what we did in taking into account the full range of different opportunities we decided to actually move the arena around, tilt it around and reinforce the spectacular views and you will see in the site plan how the distribution of the different elements is. so this is the site plan for the development and i will present this in more detail in a minute, but the overall arrangement here you can see the venue located in the southeast corner of the pier maintaining public access along at ground level, and i'll show you that in a minute. can you seat very generous areas of plazas and tiers up to a height of 50 at the highest and 35 feet where you enter into the arena. you can see retail pavilions next to the embarcadero and then across on sea wall lot 330 you can see the proposed new development of two towers over the top of mix use development under a podium. now, this is a sketch, rendering that we prepa
